  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion finely diced
  • 3 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 large carrots, shredded

  • 2 pounds halibut, cod or other fish cubed
  • Small chunks of salmon
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Add onion to the olive oil and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the potatoes and garlic, and continue cooking until the potatoes have softened slightly about 10 minutes. Pour in chicken stock, carrots and simmer for 10 minutes. Pour in milk and season to taste with salt and pepper, then stir in fish. Simmer uncovered until fish is flaky and no longer translucent in the center about 10 minutes. Gently stir in the cheese and red pepper flakes. Serve immediately.
